Hotspots of rainbow static and glitchy assembly lines share the limelight in Sabrina Ratté’s new music video for ambient artist Evan Caminiti. Ratté meets her modular match in Caminiti’s track “Arc,” off of his latest album, Meridian (Thrill Jockey). The musician, who recently branched off from his duo Barn Owl to pursue solo work, swaps his signature guitar-based drone for synthetic harmonies and found sound. Ratté responds to the resultant deep space vibes with cached graphics and light spectra. "Inspired by the track's ambience and the textured sonorities, I aimed to produce abstract landscapes melting in a neon blue night, intertwined with a cold yet bright sunlight," the video artist discloses to Thrill Jockey. "The images were generated using modules from the LZX video synthesizer, and processed through the BPMC Touch, which allows control over the degradation of the image."
